    Just did a little shop today for much needed yummy soup.
    I also get a mixed veg and fruit box from Riverfords organics every other week.

    fennel bulb
    parsley
    cannellini beans
    courgettes (zuchinni)
    aubergine (eggplant)
    vegan pesto
    organic tin tomatoes
    shortcrust pastry ( I was feeling lazy)
    fusilli pasta
    fizzy water
    orange juice
    cranberry juice

    Made a real nice ribollita soup with most of the ingredients. Yummy

    karmafunk, you can get Thai red curry paste that is vegan from Sainsbury's. It's their own version and taste really good.

    I do miss Thai food when out. There are few vegan options. I found a vegetarian Pad Thaii in Canada recently but it turns out they use Oyster sauce in the sauce mix.

    I'll shop around and see what I can find or maybe even make my own.
    A lot of thai restuarants seem to claim things containing fish sauce/shellfish as vegetarian.

    Making your own paste will taste better, but as with making bread from scratch life is often too short

    Excellent, I'll give it a go. Thank you.

    Veg bought fresh nearly every day like: spinach broccoli and peppers, at least 2 kinds of mushroom, coriander and chives etc. Any weird veg they have in too.

    Soy products from small producer at the market: beancurd skin shreds or smoked pressed tofu or gluten squares. Additionally they make sprouts and pickles: 3 day sprouted fava beans make great falafel!

    Imported luxury items from small supermarket twice/thrice weekly: olive oil, olives, whole wheat pasta, Russian beer

    Once a month I stock up at a little Indian shop: curry spice, dhal, tamarind, palm sugar, coconut cream
    the only animal ingredient in my food is cat hair

    This may sound weird, but what i eat greatly depends on where i am. Now i'm in france, i'm sort of at a loss as to what to eat. Not for lack of choice (if anything, there's more choice here than in england) - i just don't feel like eating what i used to. For example, the only vegetable i'll eat at the minute is grated carrot.

    Bananas
    Pears
    White grapes
    Carrots
    Chickpeas (canned)
    Brown short grain rice
    Quinoa
    Puy lentils
    Soya pieces
    Bouillion cubes
    Flavoured tofu
    Soya milk
    No added sugar muesli
    Pots of fruit compote (n.a.s) i.e. banana and apple
    Some type of cracker (at the moment i'm on buckwheat crispbreads)
    Dairy free soft spread (vegan philidelphia)
    Flavoured soya yogurt (occasionally)
    Apple crisps (occasionally)
    Bottled water
    Flavoured tea bags
    Express tofu ravioli (occasionally)
    Pre-packed soup

    My shopping list usually includes:

    soya milk (1 litre and mini tetrapacks)
    soya yogurt
    orange juice (1½ litre and mini tetrapacks)
    potatoes
    bread
    cucumber (also my guinea pigs' breakfast snack)
    peppers and/or tomatoes (my guinea pigs love them, too)
    vegetables (fresh, frozen or jarred)
    apples (both for me and the animals)
    bananas
    mandarine oranges
    carrots (for my animals)
    nut butters including tahini
    firm tofu
    vegetarian burgers (for my husband)
    maybe vegan burgers/sausages
    rice, pasta and Asian noodles if needed
    sauces (sweet-and-sour, Hawaiian, pasta, peanut, others)
    sugar
    vegan margarine if needed
    potato crisps
    vegan cookies
    Belgian endive or regular andive (most goes to the animals)

    My list depends on how empty my fridge, freezers, pantry, etcetera, are. We have four guinea pigs and a rabbit, so they too have a say in what I have to buy every week. Mini tetrapacks are for travelling home from work by train or other travels.

    Wow! Huge lists. I just make sure i've got some beans, like kidney beans etc. Always have to have lentils, especially red lentils. I love lentils. Celery, potatos and carrots. Muesli and rice milk in the morning. Everything else i just wander down to the shop and go get it as i need it. It's only a few $ here and there plus i get to go for a walk. Running out of lentils is bad though....

    "Everything else i just wander down to the shop and go get it as i need it."

    I might do that, if the nearest store was less than a mile away. But it's about 15 miles away. I also order some nuts and seeds on line. And I don't have a car. So I bring home as much stuff as I can carry in each $20 taxi ride, once every 10 days or so. I have a chest freezer, which I don't know how I could live without, if I don't have a car.

    That must take a lot of forward planning soilman. I'm lucky to have a shop nearby that i can walk to. It gets me my daily exercise plus it suits me to make things up as i go along. I'm fairly laid back that way.

    Staffy "That must take a lot of forward planning soilman."

    I just keep a notepad with me at all times, with one page labeled "Food." When I'm working in the kitchen and see that I am running low on something, I just add it to this page, thus constructing a shopping list. It really takes very little thought. For example I tend to always have on hand, the equivalent of 2 to 2.5 one-pound (450 gram) bags of each kind of frozen fruit and frozen vegetable, in the freezer. When I open the second bag of an item, I put that item on my list. That seems to work out so that by the time I am ready to go shopping again, the second bag is down to less than half-full.

    I'm saying the "second bag" but in actuality when I open a bag of frozen fruit or vegetable I immediately transfer its contents to a plastic freezer container, rather than store the food in its original bag.

    Default Shopping list

    I thought it would be intresting to know how my fellow vegans shop and were they shop.
    So i think it would be nice if what ever we buy food wise we put up exactly what shopping we got price and were from. Maybe we could get some market research from it as well been able to figure out were the cheapest price for products are.

    Hmm. I don't have an exact price for everything but here is what we got today and the total:

    Tofutti cream cheese
    Cheezly super-melting mozzarella
    Suma passata
    Booja Booja chocolate ice cream
    Zotter goji berry and sesame soy-chocolate
    Zotter 40% cooking chocolate
    Provamel 'juice box' style strawberry soy milk
    Provamel 'juice box' style banana soy milk
    Provamel sweetened soy milk
    Organic mushrooms
    Wholegrain noodles
    Cider vinegar
    Suma icing sugar
    Green & Blacks cocoa powder
    Redwood bacon

    I think that's it? It all came to £34, of which £10 or so was chocolate and ice cream.

    We got it all from Alligator wholefoods in York. It's an independent wholefoods and organic produce shop.

    Just realised that between the two of us (me and my boyfriend) we've spent about £65 on food this week, eeeeek! We've not been vegan that long and have gone vegan and started buying organic at the same time, so food bills have rocketed. Hopefully it'll settle down once we work out what we like and what we want to cook regularly. We're experimenting a lot at the moment and buying a lot of treats, tee hee.

    Today we had our usual £31 box of organic fruit and veg delivered - contained spuds, tomatoes, red peppers, spinach, celery, broccoli, mushrooms, oranges, apples and some other stuff that I can't remember off hand (ETA onions, carrots, sprouted lentils and pears). It seems quite good value, we probably won't need to buy more veg for the two of us, though I will buy more fruit and OH buys his own lunch at work.

    We were exactly the same once we became vegan especially when trying out new food such as certain lentils and veggies weve never had before but honestly it does get cheeper and you find yourself buying lesson once your got a good storage or main products such as beans lentils rice pasta etc.......the only thing we seem to spend a lot on is fake cheeses and icecreams but that maybe due to the fact that were we live its very hard to get hold of them so we buy in bulk........good luck on gettin your shoppin bill down though

    It's a local firm, Ems, but we live in London so I think they get most of the stuff from East Anglia. Elsewhere you can find ones operated by farms - if you look on the Soil Association website they have a list. There are even a couple of vegan organic schemes on the VON website, but obviously you have to live in the right part of the country.

    Hi
    Tempeh is nice but the best way I would describe it is unusual and it takes time to get used to.
    I bought my first pack a year ago from a health food shop (with herbs and stuff in), shoved it in the freezer then forgot in for a couple of months. I then cooked half the pack one Friday for dinner and thought it was weird (it crossed my mind that it might have gone off but that was just the herbs).
    I left the rest in the freezer for another couple of months then used it up by using it instead of sausages in a baked bean and sausage casserole (to disguise the taste). The funny thing is as I was eating it the taste slowly started to grow on me so I bought some of the plain stuff next time I went out and found that even nicer.
    Its definitely something you should try (it tastes kind of bitter but in a good way) but dont give up on it if you find it weird, the taste will get better in time. The plain stuff is good and the impulse rashers are great (better than Redwoods anyway).

    Good luck with trying out different things, the forum is a good place to get good honest opinions on different foods but the best thing you can do it try things and make your own decisions (loads of vegan cook books rave about Seitan, but I've just tried it and cant see whats so great about it).

    Sorry for going on for so long!

    Default vegan shopping lists

    I'm shopping stores like stop and shop and waldbaums. It's a bummer to shop at grocery stores that are not similar to whole foods though.

    my shopping list weekly consists of:

    penut butter,
    cinn. rasin bagel flats,
    tofu,
    rye bread and dark rye.
    vegetables and fruits,
    flax seed,
    nuts/seeds
    chips,
    pita chips,
    hummus,
    maybe some meatless products,
    amy's burrito's,
    cookies (ginger snaps/newman o's)

    I just went vegan on April 11th after being vegetarian after 2 1/2 years.

    post your shopping lists

    I love Alligator. <3 Need to stop being lazy and go there more.

    As my silly post earlier suggested I do actually eat a tonne of lentils, but as well as a big sack of lentils I've always got:

    spices (too many to list, basically every spice used in Indian cooking as well as various others)
    rice (basmati, brown, generic long grain)
    pasta
    potatoes
    onions
    dried beans (white, black, kidney, pinto)
    green beans
    flour (white and wholemeal)
    olive oil
    lemon juice
    coconut milk
    bananas
    apples
    strawberries
    garlic
    ginger
    tomatoes (canned chopped tomatoes, generic tesco)
    tomato purée
    passatta (I add a bit of olive oil and some spices to make pasta sauce, so much better than stuff from a jar!)
    peppers (bell, pointy)
    chillies (thai, generic tesco, habanero)
    mushrooms (generic tesco, giant portobello)

    My apologies for using 'generic tesco' so often, I don't really know the specific name. Compared to other people here my cupboards seem quite limited, maybe it's time to experiment some more!

    http://www.quinoa.net/145/163.html

    I'm fortunate to find them in the organic section of a local grocery store I go to. I'm not sure if they have those in the U.K. or if they would ship them that far. They are pretty good, not quite like regular spagetti but close. I havent tried brown rice spagetti but I have seen that too.

    I mentally know where everything is in my cupboards and frige so I just went through it in my head and listed it all out lol. I forgot my vinegars though (white wine, balsamic, red wine, rice wine vinegars); oh and the garlic cloves and ginger root. I dont buy all this stuff every week or I would be in serious debt. Some of it sits in there for a while. The fresh produce I buy weekly and plant milks. I only eat out maybe four or five times a year and usually bring all my own food to social events so i do cook and prepare foods a LOT.

    Yeah, lentils rock!
